Yes, with this patch, those two tests that were usually failing on my Fedora 8, now succeed.
However, to prevent any infinite loop if something goes wrong in the signal handling
of hg serve, I would propose the rather more secure:

i=0; while [ $i -lt  100 ] && kill `cat hg.pid` 2> /dev/null; do :; i=`expr $i + 1`; done

Note that I checked the timings and did not note any performance degradation of
the test durations.
